Plenty of people talk about color and I think it's great. But, I want to use this review to cover their customer service and warranty, which is FANTASTIC. I have had 66% of an order, a previous manufactured batch, fail. And they now knew about the defect and had already corrected the problem in their design/manufacturing. Their warranty service has been A+ and that is something that is a breath of fresh air.
They stand by their products and that's how you gain a customer for life.
I work with color analysis and my studio don’t have any natural light coming in. This light was a life saver.
I purchased these lights for my home office where I have setup a semi-professional broadcast studio. The build quality is truly AMAZING and I loved the flicker-free quality. I have swapped these 5000K bulbs out for Waveform's 2700K version which matches my daylight conditions better. Nonetheless, I can recommend these and the folks behind them without reservation!
An artist friend installed these 5000K lights in his small studio just before the gloomy Seattle season arrived. The light is like a studio he had years ago. Ut had a huge north facing picture window. He's very happy.
Will be buying more for other rooms in our house!
Used the 95 CRI BR30 LED Bulb for Artwork & Studio in 6500K to replace six recessed can lights in a 750 sf studio space. Very white light, easily notice the blue hues on paintings. I have some of the regular bulbs in 6500K for photographing art and may reserve half of these BR30 bulbs for photos. Going to try adding a few 5000K to the mix to see if I can dampen the blue a bit, mimic a wider range of lighting situations. Happy though—makes the space useable, even on the darkest nights, plenty of light—just not yet perfect.
I just installed a number of BR30 95 CRI/5000K in a small painting studio. They are exactly what I was hoping for.
I recently received the E26 A19 and BR30 art studio light bulbs that I ordered from Waveform. I got 5000k and 6500k in each bulb type for comparison. Each will serve me beautifully to achieve simulated daylight at any time of day. The bulbs were very effectively packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Thanks Waveform!
I did extensive research and tried 6 or more different 90-95+ CRI bulbs for lighting in our build-out of a 1,500 square foot professional textile arts, printmaking, and painting studio. The Waveform NorthLux BR30 beat them all for color accuracy. If you care about reds, then these bulbs are the way to go. The claims are for real. The bulbs are heavier than others, too. I do wish each bulb put out more lumens, but it’s an acceptable trade-off for quality light.
We are using these bulbs for a track light system installed to illuminate paintings in a dark warehouse space. The clean daylight emitted works wonders to bring out the full spectrum of colors and surface details in the artwork on display. We'll be coming back for more!
